(ii)the remaining rights and liabilities.
(2)The company is treated for the purposes of this Part—
(a)as a party to a relevant contract whose rights and liabilities consist only of those of the embedded derivative, or
(b)if there is more than one embedded derivative, as a party to relevant contracts each of whose rights and liabilities consist only of those of one of the embedded derivatives.
